Things of note for the week ending January 10th, 2014.
I’ve made a list…
1. The Solar-Powered Wall Socket
blogged tumbled this at some point last year, it’s still an awesome idea though. Create a solar plug socket anywhere; on a train, on a plane, in a hotel room, anywhere there is sunshine. This is awesome. SO AWESOME.
2. The Secret Garden of the Mind
This photo doesn’t do the art justice; but this ‘deconstruction’ of a sculptured bust really speaks to me. I can’t place it. Is it the interpretation of the mind [breaking out of the confines of the skull]? Or is just the simplistic beauty of nature hidden away deep inside our heads? I don’t know.
I post a fair bit of art from time to time, but it’s rare that I see something that I’d like to own myself. The above is one of those rarities. That is all.
3. The Eye of Sauron.. sorry, SATURN
This is stunning. Just. Stunning. If, you’re like me, you’ll probably be wanting more.
4. Thor is the new Superman
Thor is fun, the way Superman should be; his cape is a bright, hopeful red and you want to hang out with him. The Superman in Man of Steel is a guy you want to keep your distance from, more coldly alien than the Asgardian who just arrived here. Theyâ€™re both immigrants to Earth, but even though the Man of Steel Superman was raised here, Thor feels more connected to humans in his movies, more their champion. More their Superman.
Read the full article and see if you agree. I know I do.
To me, this is peace incarnate.
